As I child I always used to try to fly in my dreams. All it took was running across my yard and flapping my arms. I'm not sure if I ever got off the ground and had a "bird's eye view", I think I generally woke up. There is that tricky problem your brain must have in a dream where you are rolling along fine and the next thing it has to do is provide an image of you looking down at the top of your house -- oppps, the recall mental image processor comes up empty -- time for a scene shift.

Of course as you get older and you have reality checks in place, you probably gain a censorship process so you never even imagine what it is like to fly.

Too bad as adults, we lose the dreams of childhood.
